50 percent of the women in Beed district of Maharashtra undergo hysterectomy as a norm after birthing two or three children.
I recently read a news article which reported that “50 percent of the women in Beed district of Maharashtra undergo hysterectomy as a norm after birthing two or three children.”
Do you think this is a measure for population control? No!! This is because a woman on her period cannot work efficiently as a sugarcane worker! Shocking!! Isn’t it?

Now that you have read it, here are some of the observations that totally shook me:
How do we find a solution?
As citizens of India, we have become used to blaming the Government for everything. For this particular matter, let us think about some solutions.
Exploitation happens when there are no strict rules and policies. The stricter the rules, the better are the results! Some possible solutions could be:
Eliminate the Contractor Layer
If we eliminate the mediator layer of the contractors, the workers and the sugarcane mill owners will directly interact with each other. This would lead to transparency in work and wages.
Create Rules and Regulations
Extracting INR 500 as fine from the couple is pure exploitation! So is the practice of not giving women a choice to decide about their body. Enforcing rules and policies and fines for those who flout these can be a possible solution.
Social media communities hold the power of creating awareness leading to revolutionary change. Bringing the Government to notice the matter through social media and helping the women through the support of NGOs can help bring about a change.
Constructing bathrooms and toilets
Much has been spoken about the Swacch Bharat Abhiyan but there needs to work done in rural areas. Constructing bathrooms and toilets will ensure better hygiene for women.
Often, we are s consumed in thinking about our own self and the welfare of our families that we ignore the larger welfare of the community. Let us take out time from our busy schedules and think about ways in which we can bring about a change.
We celebrate Navratri every year. We are a wonderful creation of God. Let’s show the world the real power of women who give birth to a new life. Let women be celebrated in their true essence.

"There is a story and a vision which makes us gravitate towards cinema. Even as we worked as assistants on ads, we realised that cinema was our true calling," say Gunpreet Kaur Mann and Deepali Singh Raseen.

Let me introduce to you the talented designer duo who have worked on these, and can be considered today’s upcoming costume designers for the screen. Gunpreet Kaur Mann and Deepali Singh.
Having studied at NIFT, Gunpreet Kaur Mann sent her portfolio out to several designers. Her first gig was as an assistant stylist with Manoshi and Rushi, who also happen to be a designer duo. She worked on an ad film starring Saif Ali Khan and eventually landed a full time job with designer Vikram Phadnis. Years of experience as assistant costume designer followed, which eventually led her to getting a break.
A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
